Been doing it for decades and could not give a crap what you do to your guitars when you play them. No idea how some of you idiots are breaking necks either , that really confuses me ?
Oh, dear Ted Greene was one of my first teachers (technically my third guitar teacher). I was so lucky to get on his list and get in there with him. I still have audio cassette tapes of his lessons somewhere in storage. Ted was a true master. RIPTim lerch
